Tri January - FAQs

Do you have a burning question? Browse through these FAQs to find the answers to our most commonly raised Tri January questions.

 

I've just heard about Tri January and I'm keen to get involved - can I still register?

Amazing - we would love for you to get involved. Although Tri January registrations have closed, you can still register to GO TRI and access the downloadable monthly wall charts to help you track your distances at trijanuary.org. It would be great to see you at our GO TRI activities too - you can find these by clicking on the “search activities” button in the top right hand corner of the home page.

 

I would like to carry on clocking up my kms – how often will you be uploading the wall charts?

That’s great! We have created additional wall charts to keep you going until the end of 2019 – and who knows – there may be even more for 2020. At the end of each month, we will upload to trijanuary.org a new wall chart for you to get your hands on. We will keep you posted via social media as soon as we add a new one.

 

I’ve really enjoyed tracking my distance using the stickers – can I get some more to use on the wall charts I have downloaded?

Everyone loves a sticker! We are no longer sending out the Tri January packs so it’s time for your creativity to kick in – maybe you could perfect the art of drawing yourself running, cycling or swimming! We would love to continue to follow your journey so be sure to tag us @yourgotri #trijanuary.

 

I can’t make any of the Tri January Events  – how can I still get involved?

Don’t worry - you can take on your team’s event with your friends and family in your local area. Do it with anyone, anywhere, at any time. Keep us posted by sharing your activity with us on social media - @yourgotri #trijanuary or on the GO TRI Strava group.

There are plenty of other GO TRI activities to get involved in on the GO TRI website so feel free to take a look by clicking on the “search activities” button in the top right hand corner of the home page or head straight to our "what's on" page and use your postcode to search for GO TRI activities local to you.

 

I think I'm ready to enter one of the Tri January GO TRI Events but I would like a few tips to help me on my way.

That's great! We have plenty of Training Guides to support you on your journey – whether you want some first time triathlete tips, a 6 week training plan or even a helping hand to buy affordable equipment to help get you started – we’ve got you covered.

 

I have signed up to GO TRI Team Steadman – Wilmslow - what should I expect at my first GO TRI Event?

It’s only natural to get a little nervous before your first ever Event – that’s why we’ve created a handy guide which covers what to expect at your first GO TRI Event. You can find this in our Training Guides.

 

I joined Team Bushell for Tri January but I want to take part in GO TRI Team Steadman – Wilmslow – is that possible?

Absolutely! We have teamed up with some great Event Organisers to put on our Tri January Events and they would be more than happy to welcome any of you to take part in whichever Event you fancy.

 

I’m very keen to enter GO TRI Team You, Me & the Big C – Woking, but I don’t know whether I will be able to run the whole 2km – would it be ok if I walked some of it?

That is absolutely fine - if you don’t think you can run the whole way then don’t worry - you can walk. Going at your own pace is an important principle of GO TRI. We will never force you to do something that you are uncomfortable doing and it really doesn’t matter how fast you finish the Event – you will still be greeted by a big applause as you cross the finish line!

 

My child would like to enter a Tri January GO TRI Event – is this possible?

There are children’s events running on the same day and venue as GO TRI Team You, Me & the Big C – Woking. Head over to the trijanuary.org to check out the finer details. You can also find plenty more GO TRI Events that are open to children by using the “search activities” button in the top right hand corner of the home page.

 

I want to set my Summer challenge and enter the Accenture World Triathlon Nottingham but I’ve never swam in Open Water before. Do you have any tips?

You guessed it – we have created a ‘Getting Started in Open Water’ guide for you. Head over to our Training Guides and take a look. As the weather starts to get warmer, there will be plenty of GO TRI Open Water coached sessions for you to get involved in - keep your eyes out for these by clicking the “search activities” button in the top right corner of the GO TRI home page.
